.. As long as the OCA is being discussed, this would be an excellent moment to take a high altitude aerial view of where the OCA TEST fits into the much bigger scheme of Scientology's strategic geography. 1. The OCA is one of many techniques of "RUINING" the being--so that they can later (at lavish expense) be saved saved & salvaged by Scientology. 2. RUINING the being is standard tech, right out of Hubbard's HCO Policy on Dissemination. That is how you get someone "on the bridge" and thereafter keep them moving on the bridge. 3. The RUINING technology states that you either "find their ruin" OR "make one real to them". Any OCA test results, therefore, can be used to "make" a ruin real the the PC. The word "make" is, of course, a euphemism for "lying". 4. The "find or make" tech (see #3 above) is identical to the Fair Game tech which mandates that you handle others (SPs, enemies, et al) by "Finding or Manufacturing" incriminating evidence against them. Manufacturing is identical to "making", as in "making" something up. 5. Auditing itself utilized the same technology as the OCA and FAIR GAME. Again, Hubbard gives it a slightly different description, but that is simply misdirection. He calls it the "auditing com cycle"--which has at its core the elements of asking the PC a question that "restimulates their reactive mind" and thereafter continuing the auditing in order to give them relief from same. 6. In these ways (OCA, FAIR GAME, AUDITING) the startling common denominator is always just this: ENTURBULATING, CAVING IN & SHATTERING A PERSON IN ORDER TO HANDLE & HELP THEM. 7. The SCIENTOLOGY SALVATION CYCLE is always identical: A) Maniacally mess the person's mind up. B) Sell them relief from "A". C) Over great amounts of time and at great expense, return the person to exactly what they were before you did "A", maniacally messed them up . 8. Every "level" and the entire Grade Chart itself (i.e. the "Bridge to Total Freedom") is nothing more than a larger scale "Scientology Salvation Cycle". It ruins/salvages the person using many gimmicks such as engrams, R6EW, Clearing, Wall of Fire (OT III), Xenu's BTs (OT IV thru OT VII) et al. Then on OT VIII, the PC is returned to precisely the same place he was when he/she first entered a Scientology center, many decades earlier and $500,000 richer. Because the EP of OT VIII is "I now know who I am not and I am interested in finding out who I really am". But, they already had that mindset, before Scientology. This is why they were curious about Scientology 30-40 years earlier, to begin with! SUMMARY OF SCIENTOLOGY: They quite intentionally mess up ("ruin") your mind after which they promise to fix it at lavish expense. Then they take you on a very long and nasty ride, after which Scientology screeches to a halt at the same ghetto address where they first picked you up--at which moment they kick open the door and dump you on the street. After getting a success story.
